    International Practice: Architecture Without Boundaries HSW/SD

    04/30/09 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m.

    1.5 LUs-Advanced Level

    Jeanne Gang's early experience at OMA seems to have given her a kind of fearlessness when facing large scale urban projects and an interest in exploring the potential in materials. Taking on large-scale projects stateside and in India, Gang's style has been called rationalized expressionism.

    Nader Tehrani of Office dA has worked on projects from Boston to Beijing, and most recently, Kuwait. Minding a practice that takes on projects from city planning to furniture design, and teaching at MIT, Tehrani's research interests are focused on material logic.

    Innovator, inventor, architect Sheila Kennedy's recent efforts have been devoted to the "Soft House": the concept of many different sources of energy in a distributed system working together. With a very internationally diverse team, she is re-examining the spatial, formal, social, and material aspects of architecture and its link to infrastructure and nascent technologies.

    Learning objectives:

    Evaluate different approaches to large-scale international practice.

    Explore the materiality of building.

    Appraise the use of on-site renewable and alternative energy systems.

    Speakers: Jeanne Gang, FAIA; Sheila Kennedy, AIA; Edward Lifson (moderator); and Nader Tehrani

    Provider:The American Institute of Architects

    Thursday, 2-3:30 p.m.
